Ingredients
  

  • 12 oz sausage (cut into 1/4-inch slices) I used Al Fresco Rotisserie-Style Chicken Sausage
  • 1 pound fresh cherry tomatoes
  • 2 garlic cloves (minced)
  • cans (15 oz each can) cannellini beans or white beans (rinsed and drained)
  • ½ tsp salt (add more according to your liking)
  • ¼ tsp black pepper (add more according to your liking)
  • ½ tsp dried thyme (add more according to your liking)
  • ½ tsp dried basil (add more according to your liking)
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 cups torn kale leaves
  • 3 tbsp unsalted butter

optional:

  • ¼ cup broth (if needed)

Instructions

  • Heat the oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add sausages, cook and keep stirring for 1 minute.
  • Add cherry tomatoes, garlic, thyme, basil, salt and pepper, cook and stir to combine (for about 2 minutes).
    Start bursting some of the tomatoes with the back of the wooden spoon or spatula. You want to do this because it gives a nice acidic taste, but keep enough of the whole as it’s nice to bite into them (and have that pop!), and also to keep the acidic level right.
  • Add white beans, stir to coat for about 1 minute.
    optional: add ¼ cup of broth if the mixture is too dry.
  • Add kale, covered and keep cooking until the kale is wilted.
  • Remove from the heat and stir in the butter until melted. Serve and enjoy!
